My foot had, indeed, slipped – and God wasn’t giving me peace until things had been put right. I had to send those apologies. They were genuine. I felt so bad about it. But now the air is clear, and I know that things are right between us. That cloud has lifted! My peace has returned.

Thank You that I can know peace with You again. Amen.
